Are you a total newbie to Twitter and social media and trying to gain more followers? Or have you been a long-time user but still can’t quite crack the code on getting loyal and engaging followers? Well read this simple and easy guide that will allow you to hopefully acquire new quality and loyal followers.
Are Your Tweets Rubbish?
This happens to most first time Tweeters. Most of them don’t know that there is a difference between Twitter and other social media platforms. Twitter is a messaging system that allows you to communicate with others in up to 280 characters and they will see this and won’t even attempt to break the limit, this is where problems occur most often than not. If another person comes across your Twitter profile and sees that all you tweet is that you’re “taking the rubbish out” or “sitting in front of the telly” then they are going to be uninterested in, you and your profile and they will not follow you. Try to fill out those 280 characters with as much information as you can, and don’t waste any of the characters. One way to show that you present quality content is when you post links to websites that you find interesting or useful.
Social Media Is About Showing Content – Links!
So, you have come across a good website that has great legit content and you find it interesting or relevant, well then tweet about it. This is probably one of the best ways to produce distinctive followers. Links on Twitter stick out like sore thumbs, and they are everywhere. Now when posting these great links, try to use a service like bit.ly or tiny.url to hide your link so that other users will have the incentive to click on the link to see the web page. Sales and deals are also good things to post on Twitter as well because users are always looking for them. Also, try to post links that you yourself think are interesting and not just interesting towards others.
How Many Times Should You Tweet?
It is best to post at least once or twice a day on Twitter just to show that you are being active. If your last posts have been a couple of months ago then users are going to believe that your profile is a spammer or fake account, and chances are you will be dumped
And The Secret Is Hashtags
Hashtags are almost a secret to tweeters out there and are rarely used but they help share your content with more people. When you are posting a link, let’s say it’s about digital marketing, at the end of the tweet you would put #digitalmarketing and then when you tweet the message, it will be put with the rest of the tweets out there that have #digitalmarketing in them. So, this means people will be able to see your tweet without actually having to look at your profile.
Comment And Engage With Social Media
Be friendly and play nice! This is the quickest possible way of showing that you care for your digital followers. Treat them the way you would want to be treated. Followers like it when you reply asap, so do so, every little bit counts. Also, comment on other posts saying positive things about their selective choices in tweeting certain subjects, and they may find you gratifying, engaging and sincere and may check out your profile and follow you.
